's why. on election day this year americans voted overwhelmingly to re-elect president obama four more years. that same day people also voted to re-elect senate democrats and to send a large number of them to congress, more than the republicans. more senate democrats than republicans which put harry reid in charge of the senate for another two years. and the very next day after the election harry reid in his first post-election press conference said that he was going to fix the unprecedented problem we have in washington with how republicans have broken the united states senate through abusing the rules. >> it looks like there are going to be a number of -- many more filibusters on motions to proceed. do you think -- do you have any plans to change the filibuster? >> yes, i do. i've said so publicly, and i continue to feel that way. i think that the rules have been abused and that we're going to work to change them. >> first press conference, day after the election, harry reid saying that going forward things are going to change. specifically, this was going to change. the de facto rul
the virtue, after eight years then of barack obama and the obama administration, of being seen as somewhat of an outsider. and so it's a better way to go up against a republican, you know, after eight years of the obama administration is to have the first woman. that's the logical event that she basically would clear the field, even among the great friends and admirers of joe biden who i think has been the most effective vice president we've seen. the other small foreign policy point, not so small, the president was saying, ask moammar gadhafi and we wouldn't have what we had against mubarak. look at the headlines overnight. look at the streets of egypt, all over egypt today, egypt is hardly a success story that they should be pointing to. >> that's exactly right. in baseball, we're in the first or second inning of the middle east. this literally could be decades of turbulence. we've already seen the relationship between libya and mali and egypt, there's yet to be anything remotely like the consolidation of a democratic political order. so i think we have civil war in syria, we have unrest

obama another four years, a number of supreme court justices well into their 70s, so he could tilt what is seen generally as a fight for -- maybe center right court to one that could easy tip left and change court decisions, union and otherwise, for decades to come. >> that's certainly a possibility. it's a dangerous. it would take an extraordinary degree of activism to do that. the law that allow states right to work laws was passed in 1947. the supreme court dominated by the president roosevelt's appointees, very, very liberal president, upheld it. you know, for decades you had liberal and conservative justices saying this is what the law says. neil: not worried even if the court tips left? >> i think right to work is safe. neil: and unions, safe to say, under pressure? >> they are just going to have to persuade the members they offer services paid for. they have not been able to do that. neil: we'll watch. got the president reelected. >> spend hundreds of millions of dollars to do it. other members had little say in the spending. neil: james, thank you very much. in the meantime, can

will be watching as president obama lays out his plans for the next four years today. and he has set the bar high, saying abraham lincoln's second inaugural is the one he would most like to emulate. danielle leigh is center it all. what's the mood right now? >> reporter: you can feel the energy growing out here. the sun is rising. thousands of people are already here on the national mall. you may be able to hear some music in the background. that's coming from large screens all along national mall where i'm standing. they are going air the inauguration, give people an up close view. right now they are playing music, videos and people are crowding around those, watching those as they arrive. many people bundled up. they will be out here in the cold for the long haul. the ceremony doesn't begin until 11 in k34r0. the president takes the oath of office just before noon. when that happens we expect 800,000 people to be gathered around. it will be a very exciting moment. after that will be the parade and one of the highlights are eight floats dedicated to the first and second family, also to civil rig
doubled in the last ten years to more than $2.8 mall year in 2012. unlike previous president, mr. obama has done nothing to fix finances. >> president clinton talked about mend it, don't end it. to judge by the president's remark there is nothing that needs mending. >> the president did take steps to make it easier for people to apply for disability. he has done nothing to help them pay bigger bills. in three year mrs. obama will face a problem he has made worse. >> medicare is in federal law to pay $100 million in medical services for prison inmates and illegal immigrants. they recommend a better system to automatically flag such charges and stop illegal payments before they are made. the dow is up again, gaining 46. the s&p is on a seven-day win streak but barely. the nasdaq lost 23. so how much money would it take to solve world poverty? one media outlet did not do the math. another whopping example of media double standards. grapevine is next.

done a lot of good for barack obama the past four years. the fact that she was willing to join the administration, serve so loyally. kept the party, democratic party united. that at this point she's leaving after hitting a bit of a rough spot with the benghazi con tro strersy and also with her health issues that it was a way to say thank you. the only person might not have been so thrilled to see this interview is joe biden. because they could be rivals for the democratic nomination in 2016. but i think it may have been just exactly what barack obama said. a chance to say thank you. >> and he had called her one of the finest secretaries of state. with that said here, susan, last day, this friday, for secretary clinton. what can't president obama do in his second term without her? we've said it so many times. she's the most traveled, has spent the most miles in the air. the administration also according to what steve croft was pointing out in the interview, saying they had no major foreign policy accomplishments, major ones, that is, that they could hold high was his question in
obama inaugural is expected to draw less than a third of the nearly 2 million who came four years ago.

. >> four years ago, enormous expectations for president obama. there were a lot of people, hope and change was big. this time, call it pragmatic hope as far as the public is concerned. as you see here, just less than 30% believe they're going to evaluate president obama with a clean fresh slate. 64% will evaluate him based on past feelings. and here, a continuation of a trend we saw throughout the first term. very similar to what ronald reagan dealt with during his eight years. personally, the public really likes president obama. 74%. but his policies, again, more people disapprove of the policies. 49%, than approve of them there, at 47%. so what about the next four years? sort of a mixed optimism, if you will. i go back to the idea of pragmatic hope. 43% optimistic. 43% pessimistic. 22% kind of mixed. and staying with the theme of word clouds, david, we asked folks to send a message to president obama. what would they like to say for his second term? and as you can see here, look at the most popular phrases. a lot of them have to do with the economy. fix the economy. create jobs. then the
, um, and stan dunham, obama's grandfather, was with 8 years old at the time that his mother, obama's yeah great grandmother, died. today lived in a little house here on buchanan street down a few blocks, and the great grandfather, ralph dunham, ran a garage and auto shop. it's sixth avenue which is right around the corner, and that's where she took some strychnine and was found dead on the night of thanksgiving 1926. >> could you drive a little slower? >> i sure or can. we're now approaching the house, 703 buchanan. >> [inaudible] >> little white two-of story shotgun house, no more than 10 feet white. one house from the corner of seventh and buchanan. little front porch. i'm sure it's the same house as in 1926, although -- this is where she died, inside those walls. >> [inaudible] >> the garage where the -- [inaudible] >> alleyway could have been -- [inaudible] because that brick is old. >> host: david maraniss, how old was she when she killed herself? >> guest: she was 26. she was born in 1900. >> host: and why'd she kill herself? >> guest: she killed herself because of her -- wel
-part conversation about the presidency of barack obama and the next four years joined by doris kearns goodwin, jon meacham, bob woodward, bob caro, and michael beschloss. >> i know it's the consensus that we're -- barack obama has to do is get along with the republicans. i'd like to say something about that. president obama is fond of quoting-- and if he isn't, i am-- martin luther king's statement "the moral arc of the universe bends slowly but it bends towards justice." in the first term, president obama did bend that moral arc. he got health insurance, peace of mind for more than 30 million people. the bill may be floored but it's passed. in the second term i see a sort of differently. everyone's attacking the moral arc of justice-- social security medicare everyone's saying we have to cut it bck. that's the great safety net for the american people. i almost see him as a defender. he has to defend social security and medicare in a fiscally responsible way. >> rose: inaugural day 2013, assessment by journalists and looking forward with historians when we continue. >> rose: today barack obama was
they accuse him of not compromising? president obama has learned the lessons of four years of power politics and how to make republicans ied logs sit up and listen. >> medicare and medicaid and social security. these do not zap our initiative. they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> you got that, tea partiers? the president went right after the cynical romney/ryan republican view of the world. makers versus takers. calling out the extremists who refuse to listen to the american people. >> we cannot mistake absolutism for principle. or substitute spectacle for politics. or treat name calling as reasoned debate. >> this was a big speech of real vision. and the president made it clear he's ready to fight at their own game because the people are worth fighting for. >> for we, the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it. we are true to our creed when a little girl born into poverty knows she has the same chance as anybody else to have a
president barack obama's inaugural address was a campaign style stump speech and years from now not only remembered for his divisive combative tone, but exposed the blueprint for obama's radical second term agenda. let's take a look. >> we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care. we will respond to the threat of climate change. our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving hopeful immigrants who still see america as a land of opportunity. >> sean: all right. while obama remains health bent on tackling national security threats like climate change, the president made no substantive reference toss economic matters like putting you the american people back to work or address the single big s threat we face as a countrt of course, being the rise of islamic extremism. instead he wants you to believe that all is right with the world.
with the conservative movement that if he endorses something close to obama, i think by the end of the year you could get a deal on immigration. even that one when you get to the nuts and bolts, politics are tough for a lot of the republicans, particularly in southern districts. >> thanks so much. you'll be on "morning joe" later? >> i will. >> don't use it all up on me. as always, let us know why you're awake or tell us how you'll be spending your martin luther king jr./inauguration day. we'll read the best responses, as always, later in the show. still ahead on "way too early," the baltimore ravens? what do you mean? do we have any ravens fans here? they shocked tom brady and set up an all harbaugh bowl. and later, saturday night live's second hand news correspondents, they get all the facts wrong. that clip and a check on weather when "way too early" comes right back live from the dubliner. >>> the u.s. supreme court today overturned laws on the books for nearly a century and ruled that corporations can spend freely now on political campaigns. [ male announcer ] where do you turn for legal matters
for the next four years and called for collective action to put them in practice. >> obama: now more than ever we must do these things together as one nation and one people. we the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it. we believe that america's prosperity must rest upon the broad shoulders of a rising middle class. we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of healthcare and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. we will respond to the threat of climate change knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations we will defend our people and uphold our values through the strength of arms and rule of law. we the people, declare today that the most evident of truths that all of us are created equal equal, is the star that guides us still, just as it guided our forebears through seneca falls and selma and stone wall. for our jou

't really answer. reagan, obama, less than 30 years, what's happened in america? >> i think, you know, f.d.r. once said that great presidents become great because they come to power at a moment when ideas in the life of the nation require clarification. and they offer that clarification. ronald reagan's rise was an answer to the excesses of the new deal and the great society. he has a man who brought the conversation from the first point being what can the state do to being what the market can do? i think what's happened in the last 30 years and what's happening right now is that we know in our hearts that the choices we face that you just alluded to, the gao report, the expensive healthcare. the expense of the entitlements, the idea that so much of our future is mortgaged and only growing higher is a tough choice. and we're not apparently ready as a people and certainly not as an administration, and the obama administration to make those hard choices. i think we are threading water in the united states. and i think president obama is in some ways a figure of a threading water are a. >>

in the space of, what, almost 30 years, change so dramatically in our philosophy? >> well, first of all, obama today did say that it's a fiction to believe that government alone can solve all of the problems. so he is taking somewhat of a middle course now. if you look at that speech, i mean, it's an odd speech he just threw out things. there is kind of no coherent plan and, again, i think the missed opportunity was to say to the american public and the world, look, this is where i'm going. this is what matters. one, two, three. these are the things i'm going to do. and there was a scatter shot approach. and i think a lot of the speech was unnecessarily vague. >> you didn't answer my question. i know it's a little bit of an esoteric nation. how county nation change in less than 30 years where we are rornld reagan becomes icon into what we have now which is 1 will 0 degrees opposite? what changed? >> i think part of this and looking at presidents you realize that their personal appeal and popularity is often what people vote on. and that happened to reagan and obama as you point out is personal
. president obama spent the first four year i trying to get along with the republicans. they wouldn't do it. he's back in office, and leading up until yesterday, refused to cooperate. he drew the line in the sand, and, you know, it started to work. republicans came to the senses, okay, not touching the debt ceiling, let it float. in return, you see the democrats in the senate drawing up a budget. i think obama's -- his olive branch is, okay, i'll take this one extension to bring stability to the situation, but it's not happening again because we have to get the job doab. it's progress. it's better than the last few months. lou: some combative about it and characterize the president as being so contentious. it's the first intelligent step taken by the republicans and gives, you know, i i think hope to the nation, the first intelligent step taken by the president. they actually are moving towards one another. it looked to me like something we ought to be kind of saying hallelujah about other than analyzing, if i may, in such, well, i don't know, unsettling parts of the terms. >> it's progress
. >> the world will be watching as president obama lays out his plans for the next four years today. and he has set the bar high, saying abraham lincoln's second inaugural is the one he would most like to emulate. we have more from the center of it. danielle, what's going on right now? >> reporter: good morning, veronica. right now it's a bit chilly and breezy. pretty quiet. that is all going to change shortly when hundreds of thousands of people, likely up to 800,000, crowd on to the national mall here to watch president barack obama take the oath of office in a public ceremony kicking off his second term. people very excited about this trip. they're going to be coming out here and bearing the cold for hours to see it. there are several large screens set up so that even those who weren't able to get tickets who are going to be a ways back are able to get a front row seat to history in the making. now the president is expected to be taking the oath of office just before noon. then he will make his inaugural address. the theme of today is safe in america's future. the president will head into th
term, president obama making it clear who is in charge the next four years laying out a bold agenda in the inaugural address. that's how i read it. with more, maryann marsh, a democratic strategist, and rich lawry, editor of "the national review. " what do you think of the speech? >> audacious. one, it was an unabashedly progressive speech, shorn of the pose that's characterized as rhetoric. it also, i think, was audacious in its appropriation of the tradition of the american foundings. it was a direct challenge to republicans and the tea party saying you are obsessed with the founders. you are wrong. i am the one firmly within the tradition, and you are outside the mainstream, and you better get on board my program or hit the highway. gerri: maryann, the speech audacious in your view? >> it was bold and audacious and exactly everything he ran on, and that's why he won this election by such a big margin over mitt romney. voters elected barack obama to a second term knowing what they were going to get, and everything he talkedded about today, putting people back to work, dwetting the
committed suicide and stand down him, obama's grandfather was eight years old at the time that obama's great-grandmother died.o they lived in a little house on began and street down a few blocks and the great-grandfather ralph done him rent a garage in auto shop on sixth avenue which is right around the corner. that is where she took some strychnine and was found dead on the night of thanksgiving 1926. >> can you drive a little slower? we are now approaching the house at 703 buchanan. a little white two-story shotgun house, no more than 10 feet wide one house from the corner of seventh on buchanan. at little front porch. i'm sure it's the same house since 1926. this is where ruth dunham died. this is the garage where the drug is parked. >> that brick is old. >> yeah. >> host: at david maraniss how n old was she when she killedself herself? >> guest: she was 26. she was born in 1900.l >> host: why did she kill herself? >> guest: she killed herself because, well she left a suicide note that said she was distraught over her husband's -g so that was the immediate cause. >> host: that was the>>os
was the best thing that president obama got done in the last four years. coming in at number three on the list was preventing middle class tax hikes while raising taxes on the highest levels of income. that was the third greatest accomplishment of the president's first term, according to the latest nbc poll. number two, killing bin laden. killing osama bin laden is what president obama himself refers to as the single most important day of his presidency. for americans at large, that was number two. what ranked higher than that? what did americans think was the single best accomplishment of his first term, even better than killing bin laden? it was ending the war in iraq. president obama campaigned on ending the war in iraq in 2008. he was against that war right from the very start, and in december 2011, after eight and a half years of war, the president, as he promised, did bring the iraq war to a close. when president obama took the office -- took the oath of office four years ago, there were 144,000 u.s. troops in iraq. today it is about 200. that right there is what americans consider about
,000 or $450,000 a year. there's more space that people give it credit for. obama's speech yesterday, this isn't getting at an agenda that's radical. it's not a different agenda than when he ran for 2008 and not a different one that he pushed in 2010 or that he got re-electeded for in 2012. there's a lot more here that people -- it's because there is a broad consensus to some degree in this country. >> maybe america is turning into the progressive society that ronald reagan would be terrified of. let me ask you in terms of -- >> be still my heart. >> michael steel is going to have a heart attack on set. there's been talk about this being a triptic, which was the election night speech and the inaugural speech, and now we have the state of the union. what do we expect from that in terms of how aor specific on the policy that he gestured towards yesterday. >> i think he has to keep up this pressure going forward, and i think the real question i think we'll be looking for tea leaves in the state of the union address to what extent does he want to keep these as issues and continue building momentum
in 10 years is a complete contrast with what president obama is talking about. before we get into all the political labels and the specifics, it's clear the president plans to keep spending and borrowing and putting more debt on our children. so america has a perfect contrast between the directions that they want to go. we know -- >> but we just had an election, senator with two different directions, and america chose. that's what paul ryan said last year. the country will choose what happens in 2013. and they did. so are we past the point of two different visions in choosing? >> i don't think the country has chosen that. in fact, we see almost in the majority of states now where a conservative, bold visionary governors are implementing the ideas that work. and that's what conservatism really is. whether it's cutting taxes or freedom in the workplace or education choice, what we want to do is what we need to do for the american people is show them the successes and which ideas work. we can show where president obama's ideas go. we can look in history, at countries that failed. at euro
in late. >> first of all, i think part of this was about the next four years of president obama. it's not just about -- >> how does he need hillary? because he didn't put women in top positions? >> hillary is a major figure in the democratic party, was a major figure before he ever came on the scene. her husband, bill clinton, is still a major figure in the party even though that galls barack obama, and it wouldn't do to have this other royal family in the democratic tent out there undermining obama's candidacy or -- excuse me, obama's presidency in any way. this was a goodwill gesture on the way out of the door. >> to keep her on base. >> could tep her close, absolutely. keep your enemies close and your friends closer. >> let me ask you back the question i put to joy and she asked and answered. will joe biden bow out if it's clear hillary is running? >> i think so. and i think so because hillary has a much deeper, broader base in the party. i know joe biden well, i have covered him for a long time. he's nothing if not a political realist. if he assesses the situation a couple years
own. >> that appointment expires at the end of this year. president obama renominated him this week. the senator was one of 45 senators opposing his nomination last year. he said until key structural changes are made to ensure accountability and transparency i will continue my opposition to any nominee for director. >> the national security advisor for john brennan to become cia director. chuck hagel to become defense secretary could be bumpy. both men have been making the rounds on capitol hill trying to convince senators they are each capable of filling critical national security posts for the next four years. heather? >> peter doocy reporting from washington. thanks, peter. >>> a major set back for president obama. a federal court of appeals ruled he violated the u.s. constitution when he sidestepped congress and used recess appointments to fill positions on the national labor relations board. whi white house press secretary jay carney said there is precedence for the president's actions. >> there are a lot of cases out there with different courts we respectfully but strongly dis
of president obama, as he's aged over the last four years. it will prove the point that david was just making right there. a big smile on his face. but a lot of gray hair there, as well. probably a few more gray hairs thinking about the second inaugural address, as well. every one that's given in the shadow of lincoln's masterpiece. >> that's true. as we talked on our sunday morning show yesterday, george, he has a choice, in a sense, to make. does he want to give the roosevelt speech of 1937? or more like lincoln's second inaugural or eisenhower's second inaugural, which was not. an interesting fact about roosevelt, he came out. he gave this -- i got it right here. he spoke about blindly selfish men. talked about driving from the temple of their ancient faith, those who have profamed it. he with self-interest, the elements of decencies of life and private autocratic powers. he came out with a clenched fist. and that was 1937, the first time presidents were inaugurated on january 20th, rather than the 4th of march. and on the 5th of february, just two weeks later, he announced what was to bec
